I love this movie. At first, I was a little bit hesitated to watched it since I'm not familiar with the main actor/actress, but I'm glad I decided to watch it! Very realistic simple love story. Some of the scene are simple, but very meaningful.

I've seen a lot of young love films but this particular film, has to be the purest young love film that I have ever seen. This film also transports the viewer back in time, when values were different and love was approached differently.

Great acting from the cast, in particular, from the leads, in which this film was their acting debut. Shawn Dou was great as the hunky lead male (great smile!) and Zhou Dongyu was lovely as the naive lead female. My only gripe: the male lead character seemed to be a bit too perfect and angelic and it would have been nice to have some more dimension to his character.

Even though the film is set during Communist China, there isn't too much emphasis on politics. This is a pure love story at its best with the interactions between the main characters at the forefront.

The film also has amazing cinematography. The color palette isn't striking but there is a nice contrast between the village and the city landscapes.

Recommended for those who enjoy those simple and pure love stories.
